!!Karna
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KaoriIshihara (Japanese)
A cheerful, honest young girl who lives in the treetop village of Comodo. An extremely skilled huntress, she puts most of the other hunters in the village to shame with her accuracy and cunning talent. Her weapon of choice is the throwing knife, though she has an unfortunate habit of throwing first and asking questions later…

* AllAmazonsWantHercules: She thinks it would be great to marry Adol because he would be a good sparing partner.
* BareYourMidriff
* BigEater: Mostly implied, but she loves trying new things.
* BlowYouAway: Her main elemental ability with ShockAndAwe and PlayingWithFire as secondaries.
* BottomlessMagazines: She never runs out of knives. Ever.
* CoolBigSis: To her younger twin brother and the children in her village, but not so much for the party.
* DanceBattler: Her first close range move is a launcher where she creates a cyclone by breakdancing.
* FashionableAsymmetry: One leg of her pants is completely cut off to allow for the knife belt on her thigh.
* GenkiGirl
* GlassCannon
* HeroicBSOD: Apparently undergoes this when it is revealed that [[spoiler:her twin brother has been hiding his talent all along and allegedly drove his FaceHeelTurn]]. [[PluckyGirl She quickly goes back on her feet though.]]
* TheGlomp: Gives one to Adol after finding him in Casnan.
* HartmanHips: Not as pronounced as Frieda, but they're there.
* KnifeNut
* ShesGotLegs: Duren even tells Adol to not look at them "like that" when they notice the injuries she's sustained while tracking them down.
* StandardStatusEffects: Several of her skills give status ailments to her targets.

!!Remnos
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KenjiNojima (Japanese)
Karna's younger twin brother and a bit of a resident BlackSheep in Comodo in that he has chosen the path of an artist/craftsman/historian rather than following the way of the warrior. [[spoiler:His disappearance from the village is what prompts Karna to join Adol's party]].

* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler:With Leo during the climax]].
* BrilliantButLazy: Is accused of being this. [[spoiler:The "lazy" part is inverted in that he works hard to not reveal how good he really is because he respects Karna's hard work and doesn't want to discourage her by making it look too easy.]]
* {{Determinator}}: [[spoiler:Withstands the effects of Bami's death curse on him long enough for Adol's team to kill the one who placed the curse on him and break it]].
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:He joined the Romun army, but only to act as a ReverseMole on Adol's behalf to spy on the rogue army officers.]]
* InsaneAdmiral: [[spoiler:Subverted. He was trying to infiltrate the rogue officers' ranks to feed Adol's party information.]]
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler:His reason for pulling a FakeDefector act was to infiltrate the ranks of the rogue Romun army officers and feed information to Adol's team.]]

!!Duren
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroakiHirata (Japanese)
An information dealer whom Adol encounters at a bar in Casnan. He claims to have met Adol before – though with no memory, Adol remains skeptical.

* ChewToy: He is a target of many snarky comments from party members and [=NPCs=] alike.
* ChildhoodFriends: [[spoiler:With Frieda.]]
* DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler:He is a member of the Clan of Darkness, but is not evil.]]
* {{Expy}}: Of Dogi in Memories of Celceta. He fights using martial arts. Dogi could not be Adol's partner because Dogi asks Adol about the latter's EXTRA attack after he performs one in Ys Seven, and about where he was hiding this power. Having Dogi witness one in Memories of Celceta would have introduced a major PlotHole.
* HypocriticalHumor: Claims that he hates "goody-two-shoes" type like Adol, but as others pointed out, Duren is often too kind for his own good.
* KiAttacks
* KungFuWizard
* KnowledgeBroker: He helps out Adol with his ability to gather information and point out the places in Celceta that they should visit.
* MiserAdvisor: Shades of this - his intro scene even has him declaring Adol is his favorite "source of money" before correcting it to "friend".
* MysticalWhiteHair
* NiceGuy: Somewhat subverted in that his helping Adol regain the lost memory turns out to be not so altruistic. At the same time, however, he is shown to be the type who doesn't like leaving people in trouble, as much as he hates to admit it.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler:He is actually very knowledgeable about all events that were transpiring in Celceta, including Adol's memory loss and what led to it. He tags along with Adol in order to point him in the right direction.]]

A resident of the village of Selray, and the sole remaining member of the tribe which cares for the sacred beasts known as Spardas.

Reliable, level-headed and dedicated, he is loved and respected by all of the village’s residents. While extremely stubborn and inflexible when it comes to the laws of his tribe, he is also extremely loyal to the people in his charge.

* BadassBoast[=/=]ShutUpHannibal: [[spoiler:Delivers one at Gadis' HannibalLecture late in the game.]]
--> [[spoiler:''I am in a position to change those laws!'']]
* ButtMonkey: While in Danan, he of all people becomes the butt of some jokes in regards to romance.
* ChargedAttack: Some of his skills are very strong to start off with but require charging time. Leveling up these skills generally shortens the time it takes to charge them.
* ImpliedLoveInterest: A late-game sidequest revealed that the NPC who takes care of Spardas in his absence harbors crush on him. [[ShipperOnDeck The party approves.]]
* TheJudge: He is the sole person in Selray who is assigned to handle crimes and to deal with criminals. Fortunately, he is not a HangingJudge.
* LastOfHisKind: The sole remaining member of a tribe designated as Sparda caretakers.

!!Calilica
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YuiOgura (Japanese)
An energetic, curious young girl who is mature beyond her years in many regards. She harbors something of a complex about her age and youthful appearance, and is constantly seeking to be recognized as an adult by those around her. She looks up to Leeza as an older sister, and has been with her since they were both children. As such, she will hold back at nothing if she can be of assistance to her.

* AGodAmI: The town of Highland worships him as a god. He denies it in general [[spoiler:but his dark Eldeel persona embraces it.]]
* BigBad: This trope applies to his versions in previous games. One is the main antagonist in ''Mask of the Sun'', and another one is one of the main antagonists of ''Dawn of Ys''. [[spoiler:In ''Memories of Celceta'', his dark personality is the one who came up with the idea of using the Mask of the Sun to test humanity with disasters, though Gruda takes over once he's been sealed.]]

!!Gruda
->'''Voiced by:''' TakumaTerashima (Japanese)
A sharp-eyed man who came from the Romun Empire to serve as an assistant to the Governor Griselda. He seems favorable to Adol but perhaps there is more to him than meets the eye...
[[spoiler: He is actually a member of the Clan of Darkness from Danan. Unlike most members of the clan from that village (such as Frieda) who regret their ancestors' actions, he left with Ernst and Geis to Romun, before returning in search of the Mask of the Sun.]]

* DragonAscendant:[[spoiler:While he ends up being the final antagonist, Dark Eldeel was the one who established the EvilPlan long before he was even born. All Gruda did was take over once Dark Eldeel is neutralized and then make the plan even more extreme.]]
* DragonInChief: His ''Dawn of Ys'' counterpart serves Leo, but is clearly more dangerous than Leo and has a much more dangerous goal than Leo does.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: His ''Dawn of Ys'' counterpart serves Leo, but they don't work together much but do not fight each other because their goals are different but do not conflict with each other. [[spoiler:Downplayed in ''Memories of Celceta'', where he shares Eldeel's view that humanity must overcome trials, but is more willing to wipe them out if they can't pass.]]
* DuelBoss: [[spoiler:The very [[FinalBoss last battle]] against him.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Subverted. [[spoiler:He disagrees with the previous Darklings' MO of blindly seeking power for its own sake. Unfortunately, his goals are also far more destructive than the previous group, since Dalles and Zava planned to simply take over the world rather than use the power to kill off the weak.]]
* EvilFormerFriend: [[spoiler:Of Frieda and Duren.]]
%%* [[spoiler:FlunkyBoss]]
* FragileSpeedster: [[spoiler:His Phantom form is fairly quick, but has low attack and defenses compared to previous bosses.]]
* InsaneAdmiral: [[spoiler:In this game, he is a rogue military leader. In the games that were replaced, he is an officer of an [[TheEmpire evil empire]].]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:He is pretty much behind everything in this game.]]
* MiseryBuildsCharacter[=/=]TheApocalypseBringsOutTheBestInPeople: [[spoiler:An extreme version of this trope. He intends on using the power of the Akashic Records to create a massive calamity for humanity because he believes that people can unlock their full potential only at the face of extreme danger.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:He transforms into a gigantic colossus for the first phase of the final battle.]]
** ClippedWingAngel: [[spoiler:He becomes a shadowy humanoid in the last DuelBoss against Adol and is much weaker than the gigantic colossus form.]]
* ObviouslyEvil: [[spoiler:The biggest surprise isn't that he is a bad guy but that he is the BigBad in this official version of Ys IV.]]
* SinkOrSwimMentor: [[spoiler:Unlike Eldeel, he believes that if humanity cannot survive his trials, they don't deserve to exist.]]

As he lays dying, he apologizes for his actions and asks Adol to stop the ark, opening the passage to the control room. He also bequeaths his three fairies to Geis.]]

!!Galbalan
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BanjoGinga
An ancient demon from the legend. [[spoiler:Supposedly, it was slain by the warrior Genos with the blessing of the winged ones. However, it turns out that even Genos could not defeat the beast completely so he divided its powers into the four statues and sealed each statue at different regions across Felghana. Somehow, it managed to get in contact with the bishop Nikolas at Illburns ruin, turning the once devout priest into the fanatical madman who would stop at nothing to revive his true god. Through Nikolas, Galbalan was able to destroy most of the descendants of Genos and regain his powers. After receiving Elena's energy, Galbalan starts to awaken and declares his intention to destroy everything and spread terror across the world. Fortunately, Adol manages to arrive just in time to face the would-be destroyer. Although Adol manages to critically weaken the monster, it starts to regenerate rapidly. Ultimately, Chester, in his moment of redemption, sacrifices himself to blow up the whole island, destroying the demon for good in the process.]]

[[spoiler:It is implied that Galbalan is an artificial creation from ash emelas that was created by the clan of darkness long time ago as a weapon of mass destruction. It somehow managed to gain sentience and went on a rampage before getting sealed in Felghana by Genos.]]

[[spoiler:There are other Galbalans in other games like ''Memories of Celceta'' and ''The Ark of Napishtim''.]]

!!Karna
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/KaoriIshihara (Japanese)
A cheerful, honest young girl who lives in the treetop village of Comodo. An extremely
skilled melee fighter whose only magical abilities come from artifacts huntress, she picks up.puts most of the other hunters in the village to shame with her accuracy and cunning talent. Her weapon of choice is the throwing knife, though she has an unfortunate habit of throwing first and asking questions later…

* AllAmazonsWantHercules: She thinks it would be great to marry Adol because he would be a good sparing partner.
* BareYourMidriff
* BigEater: Mostly implied, but she loves trying new things.
* BlowYouAway: Her main elemental ability with ShockAndAwe and PlayingWithFire as secondaries.
* BottomlessMagazines: She never runs out of knives. Ever.
* CoolBigSis: To her younger twin brother and the children in her village, but not so much for the party.
* FashionableAsymmetry: One leg of her pants is completely cut off to allow for the knife belt on her thigh.



* IncorruptiblePurePureness: Feena suggests that it's because Yunica is so pure that she is unable to use any magic. While the Black Pearl grants the ability to use magic, it also [[spoiler:gave rise to the demons]].
* LightningBruiser: She is fast and strong when using her axe and can take the most damage of all of the playable characters.
* LongRangeFighter: [[spoiler:She becomes this while wielding her father's great sword. This sword deals more damage per hit than her battle axe, but it is so heavy that she takes much more time to swing it. She therefore deals less damage per second when executing consecutive attacks with the sword versus her battle axe. However, the sword when combined with a ruby allows her to unleash a slow, wide, strong, and extremely long range [[PlayingWithFire fire attack]] whose range is much longer than Hugo's range with either his normal attacks or his charged fire attacks.]]
* MightyGlacier: [[spoiler:She is this while using her father's great sword because his BFS is much heavier than her axe. She therefore takes some time to swing the sword despite her extreme strength.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Throughout much of her route, it's apparent that Roy likes her, but Yunica hasn't a clue and assumes he picks on her because he thinks of her as a kid.
* RealTimeWeaponChange: [[spoiler:She can switch between her normal battle axe and her father's great sword on the fly. The battle axe is faster and has a longer combo, but deals less damage per hit. The great sword does more damage per hit, but is slower.]]
* TakeUpMySword: [[spoiler:From the spirit of her deceased father, Saul Tovah.]]
* TragicKeepsake: In her route, she gets the Spirit Necklace from [[spoiler:Roy, who imbues it with the last of his magic before he dies. It contains all of Roy's magic which he pooled into the artifact after he was fatally wounded by Zava. Roy's magic will completely resurrect Yunica once if she is killed if she has equipped this necklace.]]
* UnSorcerer: Ys was full of sorcerers at the time of ''Ys: Origin''. She has no aptitude for magic at all except for using magical artifacts.

!!Hugo Fact
The ancestor of the evil Dark Fact, Hugo is a powerful magician with projectile based spells. He controls two floating orbs known as the Eyes of Fact that effectively triple or quintuple his firepower depending on whether or not he is in boost mode or not. He also has a variety of shields at his control.

* AcademicAthlete: While he's not a physical fighter like the other player characters, he can still do his fair share of running and jumping to traverse the Tower of Darm.
* [[AttackDrone Attack Drones]]:His Eyes of Fact are essentially magical versions of these.
* BadPowersGoodPeople: [[spoiler:Hugo is a good person, but he uses BlackMagic in to progress initially not knowing that it is bad until he learns that the magic of Ys generates demons. The magic is bad because its source is the Black Pearl, which generates demons as a side effect when it is used to fuel magic when used by anyone not made up completely of white emelas like the Goddesses.]]
* BarrierWarrior: His wind skill and his final burst - the shield magic of the Fact family - count.
* BlackMage
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:Dalles inflicts this on him in Toal's route, to the point where Epona can't snap him out of it like she did in his route.]]
* BreakTheHaughty: [[spoiler:In his route, his lust for power ends up getting himself corrupted and Epona killed.]]
* DatingCatwoman: [[spoiler:His relationship with Epona.]]
%%* [[spoiler:DealWithTheDevil]]
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: He puts up an arrogant facade to hide his jealousy of his brother's reputation. [[spoiler:Dalles exploits this to tempt him into using the Demonic Essence.]]
* InsufferableGenius
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LongRangeFighter
* ObliviousToLove: A trait he amusingly shares with co-protagonist Yunica. He has no idea Miuscha has a crush on him and it gets lampshaded twice during the events of the Wailing Blue, first by Rico and then by Cadena. [[spoiler:The same can be said when Epona falls in love with him in his and Toal's routes. He falls in love with Epona, but he apparently has never been taught what love is and therefore does not know what it is.]]
--> '''Hugo:''' But Miuscha... Honestly, I don't know why she volunteered for the search party in the first place.
--> '''Rico:''' ...
--> '''Hugo:''' ...? What's with that look?
--> '''Rico:''' Oh, nothing. I was just marveling at what a contradiction you are. So smart in so many ways... yet totally oblivious in others.
--> '''Hugo:''' What? Oblivious how?!
--> '''Rico:''' (sigh) Never mind.
* {{Pride}}: His major character flaw.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[spoiler:When he activates his demon seeds.]]
* SquishyWizard: He takes less damage than Yunica can before he is killed.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler:Briefly gets taken over by demon seeds in his own route and Toal's route.]]
* TeenGenius
* UnwittingTestSubject: [[spoiler:Cain Fact directed Dalles to turn Hugo into a demon to see how his own lineage could handle being turned into demons so that Cain could see if he could handle demonic power himself. Either Toal or Epona (depending on route) helps Hugo regain his humanity.]]
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: [[spoiler:Unlike his brother, he loses his sanity when he is a demon.]]

!!The Claw / [[spoiler:Toal Fact]]

* AloofBigBrother: [[spoiler:To Hugo. However, he cares a lot about Hugo beneath that aloofness.]]
* BadPowersGoodPeople: [[spoiler:He relies on demonic power to fight, but he still is mostly a good person who is forced to do bad things in order to infiltrate the bad guys.]]
* BattleAura: [[spoiler:Whenever he activates his demonic essence/boost mode, he has a dark battle aura.]]
* {{Combos}}: He is fast enough to deliver a second hit with his claws to most enemies while they are in hitstun. In fact, he depends on combos because a single hit from his attacks is very weak compared to other playable characters' hits in much of the game, and has very poor ability to take a hit for much of the game as well. On a side note, he does actually get the highest numerical Strength score after some levels, which isn't surprising given his whole deal.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler:He receives one in the form of the Cleria sword for the final battle against Darm.]]
* FakeDefector: [[spoiler:He pretended to join up with the Darklings in order to survive, but he always planned to destroy the Black Pearl.]]
* FallenHero: [[spoiler:Subverted as he intended to betray the clan of darkness and destroy the black pearl - even at the cost of his own life - from the very beginnning.]]
* FragileSpeedster: [[spoiler: He is this until late in his route when he becomes a LightningBruiser. He is fast, but for most of the game takes more damage than the other player characters.]]
* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:Unlike Hugo, he is able to keep the demonic essence in check through sheer willpower.]]
* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler:He becomes this once he levels up enough. He can start taking many hits once he levels up enough, and he keeps the speed he needed to dodge enemy attacks from when he could not take many hits.]]
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler:He and his superior Saul Tovah held off the entire army of demons.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Whenever he activates his demonic essence, his eyes turn red.
* SlideAttack: He can use a slide attack to [[ArmorPiercingAttack damage an enemy's defense]] and to slide under small gaps that have spiked ceilings.
* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler:He is in love with Reah, but she and Feena sacrificed themselves to seal the demonic essence within the Black Pearl after Toal defeated Darm.]]
* StockholmSyndrome: [[spoiler:This is hinted at before he is exposed as a ReverseMole when he mentions that he was captured and then turned on his own volition.]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He becomes much more evil when he activates his boost mode which temporarily turns him into a full demon. [[spoiler:This is enough to allow him to open a door that is cursed to only open up for demons and other thoroughly evil beings. However, [[HeroicWillpower he is able to maintain control over himself while he is in this state]] and does not do anything evil while in this state except what he needed to do in order to maintain his cover.]]
* SwordBeam: [[spoiler:When Toal uses his silver sword, he fires sword beams from his sword each time he swings it. Adol is unable to do this when he uses the same sword in Ys I.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: Claims his combat skills are dulling [[spoiler:because he relies too much on his demonic powers]]. Though this is a case of GameplayAndStorySegregation because his lack of ranged attacks means he's at the forefront of enemy attacks, requiring better dodging skills from the player.
* UnwittingTestSubject: [[spoiler:Cain Fact told the Darklings to turn Toal into a demon in order to see how Toal handled being turned into a demon to see how he handled being turned into a demon. Cain wanted to see if he himself could handle the demonic essence, and used Toal as a pilot test subject before he decided to become Darm.]]
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: [[spoiler:His [[SuperpoweredEvilSide demonic essence]] allows him to open doors that are cursed only to open to demons and other thoroughly evil beings.]]
* WolverineClaws: He uses silver claws as his primary weapon [[spoiler: in order to disguise the fact that he is Toal Fact, who is known to use a silver sword, from the Darklings.]]

* InsufferableGenius
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* LongRangeFighter
* ObliviousToLove: A trait he amusingly shares with co-protagonist Yunica. He has no idea Miuscha has a crush on him and it gets lampshaded twice during the events of the Wailing Blue, first by Rico and then by Cadena. [[spoiler:The same can be said when Epona falls in love with him in his and Toal's routes. He falls in love with Epona, but he apparently has never been taught what love is and therefore does not know what it is.]]
--> '''Hugo:''' But Miuscha... Honestly, I don't know why she volunteered for the search party in the first place.
--> '''Rico:''' ...
--> '''Hugo:''' ...? What's with that look?
--> '''Rico:''' Oh, nothing. I was just marveling at what a contradiction you are. So smart in so many ways... yet totally oblivious in others.
--> '''Hugo:''' What? Oblivious how?!
--> '''Rico:''' (sigh) Never mind.

!!Duren
->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/HiroakiHirata (Japanese)
An information dealer whom Adol encounters at a bar in Casnan. He claims to have met Adol before – though with no memory, Adol remains skeptical. An extremely kind-hearted man (though he’d never admit it), Duren can’t bring himself to walk away from someone in need, making him a perfect travel companion.

* ChildhoodFriends: [[spoiler:With Frieda.

* BadPowersGoodPeople: DarkIsNotEvil: [[spoiler:He relies on demonic power to fight, is a member of the Clan of Darkness, but he still is mostly a good person who is forced to do bad things in order to infiltrate the bad guys.not evil.]]
* BattleAura: [[spoiler:Whenever {{Expy}}: Of Dogi in Memories of Celceta. He fights using martial arts. Dogi could not be Adol's partner because Dogi asks Adol about the latter's EXTRA attack after he activates performs one in Ys Seven, and about where he was hiding this power. Having Dogi witness one in Memories of Celceta would have introduced a major PlotHole.
* HypocriticalHumor: Claims that he hates "goody-two-shoes" type like Adol, but as others pointed out, Duren is often too kind for
his demonic essence/boost mode, he own good.
* KiAttacks
* KungFuWizard
* KnowledgeBroker: He helps out Adol with his ability to gather information and point out the places in Celceta that they should visit.
* MiserAdvisor: Shades of this - his intro scene even
has a dark battle aura.him declaring Adol is his favorite "source of money" before correcting it to "friend".
* MysticalWhiteHair
* NiceGuy: Somewhat subverted in that his helping Adol regain the lost memory turns out to be not so altruistic. At the same time, however, he is shown to be the type who doesn't like leaving people in trouble, as much as he hates to admit it.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: [[spoiler:He is actually very knowledgeable about all events that were transpiring in Celceta, including Adol's memory loss and what led to it. He tags along with Adol in order to point him in the right direction.
]]
* {{Combos}}: He is fast enough to deliver a second hit with his claws to most enemies while they are in hitstun. In fact, he depends on combos because a single hit from his attacks is very weak compared to other playable characters' hits in much of the game, and has very poor ability to take a hit for much of the game as well. On a side note, he does actually get the highest numerical Strength score after some levels, which isn't surprising given his whole deal.

* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:Unlike Hugo, he is able to keep the demonic essence in check through sheer willpower.]]
* LightningBruiser: [[spoiler:He becomes this once he levels up enough. He can start taking many hits once he levels up enough, and he keeps the speed he needed to dodge enemy attacks from when he could not take many hits.]]
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler:He and his superior Saul Tovah held off the entire army of demons.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Whenever he activates his demonic essence, his eyes turn red.
* SlideAttack: He can use a slide attack to [[ArmorPiercingAttack damage an enemy's defense]] and to slide under small gaps that have spiked ceilings.
* StarCrossedLovers: [[spoiler:He is in love with Reah, but she and Feena sacrificed themselves to seal the demonic essence within the Black Pearl after Toal defeated Darm.]]
* StockholmSyndrome: [[spoiler:This is hinted at before he is exposed as a ReverseMole when he mentions that he was captured and then turned on his own volition.]]
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: He becomes much more evil when he activates his boost mode which temporarily turns him into a full demon. [[spoiler:This is enough to allow him to open a door that is cursed to only open up for demons and other thoroughly evil beings. However, [[HeroicWillpower he is able to maintain control over himself while he is in this state]] and does not do anything evil while in this state except what he needed to do in order to maintain his cover.]]
* SwordBeam: [[spoiler:When Toal uses his silver sword, he fires sword beams from his sword each time he swings it. Adol is unable to do this when he uses the same sword in Ys I.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: Claims his combat skills are dulling [[spoiler:because he relies too much on his demonic powers]]. Though this is a case of GameplayAndStorySegregation because his lack of ranged attacks means he's at the forefront of enemy attacks, requiring better dodging skills from the player.
* UnwittingTestSubject: [[spoiler:Cain Fact told the Darklings to turn Toal into a demon in order to see how Toal handled being turned into a demon to see how he handled being turned into a demon. Cain wanted to see if he himself could handle the demonic essence, and used Toal as a pilot test subject before he decided to become Darm.]]

{{Combos}}: He is fast enough to deliver a second hit with his claws to most enemies while they are in hitstun. In fact, he depends on combos because a single hit from his attacks is very weak compared to other playable characters' hits in much of the game, and has very poor ability to take a hit for much of the game as well.

* DragonInChief: His ''Dawn of Ys'' counterpart serves Leo, but is clearly more dangerous than Leo and has a much more dangerous goal than Leo does.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: His ''Dawn of Ys'' counterpart serves Leo, but they don't work together much but do not fight each other because their goals are different but do not conflict with each other. [[spoiler:Downplayed in ''Memories of Celceta'', where he shares Eldeel's view that humanity must overcome trials, but is more willing to wipe them out if they can't pass.]]

Also in the trailer, he states the line "Humans are like insects before the power of the ancient one," which clearly shows that he is not one of the good guys. Of course, those who played other versions of Ys IV already know that this character is a bad news for Adol.

A Romun governor who recently got stationed in Celceta. At the beginning of the game, she asks Adol to clear monsters and to create the map of Celceta. She returns in Lacrimosa of Dana, but only if you found her.

* DefectorFromDecadence: While she and Leo show that not all Romuns are bad, they both acknowledge that people's mistrust towards Romn is more or less justified due to its corruption and militant expansionist policies.

* InternalReformist: She is one of the few members of the Romun Empire that fights against the corruption that is typical of this empire.

!!Commander Leo
The commanding officer in charge of the Romun troops stationed in Celceta. He was once held in high esteem as Roaring Leo but he got demoted and sent to Celceta. He always appears with the two soldiers under his command, Sancho and Panza.

* AdaptationalHeroism: His original versions in both ''Mask of the Sun'' and ''The Dawn of Ys'' are evil men. The nameless counterpart in ''Mask of the Sun'' gets killed by Adol when he attempts to conquer Comodo and [[FrontlineGeneral fights alongside his men]]. The counterpart in ''The Dawn of Ys'' dies thanks to his own greed causing him to trigger a trap that kills him. The version in ''Memories of Celceta'' is much more heroic and survives the game.
* AFatherToHisMen: [[spoiler:He took the blame for one of his subordinates' grievous mistakes, which caused him to be demoted and sent to Celceta.]]
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: [[spoiler:During the endgame, Leo proves that his sword isn't just for show when he fights off several shadow creatures.]]
* DeathByMaterialism: In Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys when the motive of the version of Leo in this game is greed for treasure. He gets [[ShockAndAwe zapped]] to death for opening a treasure chest that only Adol is authorized to open by the deceased. This trope does not apply to the Leo in Memories of Celceta at all.

* PluckyComicRelief: His main purpose in the game is to appear in front of Adol's party and make complete fool out of himself and soldiers under his command in various places. The people of Casnan think of him as a joke.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: That said, he genuinely wants to help out the people of Celceta. This trope does not apply to his appearance in Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys because he is a villain out to conquer Celceta in this non-canonical game.
* [[ReassignedToAntarctica Reassigned to Celceta]]
* WeHaveReserves: This trope applies to the Leo in Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys, where the version of Leo in that game sends his troops into a fire trap, and most of them get incinerated by that trap. This trope does not apply to the Leo in Memories of Celceta at all.
* ThrowTheDogABone: By the end of the game, some townspeople and soldiers start showing respect to him.

* DefectorFromDecadence: While she and Leo show that not all Romuns are bad, they both acknowledge that people's mistrust towards Romn is more or less justified due to its corruption and militant expansionist policies.

* InternalReformist: She is one of the few members of the Romun Empire that fights against the corruption that is typical of this empire.

The nameless counterpart in ''Mask of the Sun'' gets killed by Adol when he attempts to conquer Comodo and [[FrontlineGeneral fights alongside his men]]. The counterpart in ''The Dawn of Ys'' dies thanks to his own greed causing him to trigger a trap that kills him. The version in ''Memories of Celceta'' is much more heroic and survives the game.

* ObviouslyEvil: In Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys. This trope does not apply to the version of Leo in Memories of Celceta.
* PluckyComicRelief: His main purpose in the game is to appear in front of Adol's party and make complete fool out of himself and soldiers under his command in various places. The people of Casnan think of him as a joke.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: That said, he genuinely wants to help out the people of Celceta. This trope does not apply to his appearance in Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys because he is a villain out to conquer Celceta in this non-canonical game.
* [[ReassignedToAntarctica Reassigned to Celceta]]
* WeHaveReserves: This trope applies to the Leo in Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys, where the version of Leo in that game sends his troops into a fire trap, and most of them get incinerated by that trap. This trope does not apply to the Leo in Memories of Celceta at all.
* ThrowTheDogABone: By the end of the game, some townspeople and soldiers start showing respect to him.

Unlike Geis who is trying to atone for the mistakes of his ancestors, he seeks to obtain the power of Napishtim for himself. To that end, he sends out his three fairies in order to undo the seal on the ark and kidnaps Isha. Using the control key Almarion and Isha's power, he manages to gain control of the ark but is ultimately defeated by Adol. After his defeat, Ernst tries to draw more power from the ark but fails, causing Napishtim to go berserk in the process. As he lays dying, he apologizes for his actions and asks Adol to stop the ark, opening the passage to the control room. He also bequeaths his three fairies to Geis.]]

* AloofBigBrother: [[spoiler:To Geis.]]
* {{BFS}}: [[spoiler:His sword Almarion.]]
* BigBad: Of ''Ys: The Ark of Napishitim''.

%%* [[spoiler:DisappearsIntoLight]]
* FairyCompanion: He has the three fairies that cause most of the troubles in the land of Canaan.
* FlunkyBoss
* ManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:He is responsible for leading the Romun troops into the Canaan and having the three fairies break the seal on Napishtim.]]
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler: In his FinalBoss form.]]
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Downplayed. He enacted his entire plan both because he wanted a power-trip and because he wanted to control Napishtim to ensure that it doesn't go berserk. Of course, his plans become a SelfFulfillingProphecy when he ends up overloading Almarion and loses control of the ark.
